3rd International Conference on
Computer Graphics Theory and Applications
22 - 25 January, 2008       Funchal, Madeira - Portugal
Call for Papers  
GRAPP is co-organized by INSTICC - Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, and Universidade da Madeira.


The International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (GRAPP) aims at becoming a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners in Computer Graphics. The conference will be structured along four main tracks, covering different aspects related to Computer Graphics, from Modelling to Rendering, including Animation and Interactive Environments.
We welcome papers describing original work in any of the areas listed below. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques as well as general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Paper acceptance will be based on quality, relevance to the conference themes and originality. The conference program will include both oral and poster presentations. 
Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged. Companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below. Papers should address one or more of the listed topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related topics are also allowed.
